Some schools and workplaces have policies requiring suspensions pending a psychological evaluation indicating the student or employee is safe to return to school or work. You may perceive this requirement to be an unimportant formality or “just a simple doctor’s note.” However, these cases require a careful assessment of risk for violence, suicide, and other issues.
We understand that obtaining such an evaluation is an urgent issue for you. Your child is likely missing school or perhaps you are missing work. Perhaps the start of your military career is being delayed. Dr. Maddux is accessible and works with a variety of qualified professionals. While we are immediately available to assist, please note we do not accept insurance for this service. We believe “that fairness and justice entitle all persons to access to and benefit from the contributions of psychology” (APA, 2002) and we encourage you to call and review your payment options.
